Snowfall warning for Arctic Bay issued

Heavy snow continuing through tonight and Thursday.

An intense low pressure system has brought very strong west to northwest winds to Hall Beach and Igloolik in its wake. Northwest winds of 60 to 80 km/h with gusts up to 100 will persist tonight. The low is expected to slow down over Baffin Island, and as a result strong winds of 50 to 60 km/h with higher gusts will persist through Thursday.

At Arctic Bay, 7 cm of snow has been reported this evening, most of which fell throughout the day. Snow, fog, strong winds and poor visibilities will continue there through the night and Thursday. Total snowfall accumulations are expected to range from 15 to 25 cm by the time it tapers off Friday morning.
